Storage aka Network Attached Storage is a term often to be read as Shared Network Attached Storage.

While Network Attached Storage serve as common access storage in the network and users can directly access them like the windows shares. Direct Attached Storages are to be consumed only by the Application/OS installed into the Direct Attached Storage System.
